     Promoting the Java Card[TM] API Specification as the Industry Standard

        The Java Card[TM] Forum is aimed at promoting the Java[TM] programming
        language as the preferred programming language for multiple-application
        smart cards. The forum's activities are intended to promote the Java
        Card API specification as the industry standard, to better meet the
        needs of the smart card manufacturers and their customers.

        The Java Card Forum is divided into two committees, the Business
        Committee and the Technical Committee. Ever since the group was founded
        in 1997 the two groups have met every two months. Current work is
        focused on vertical market extensions to the core specification for GSM
        telecom, banking and information technology.

        The main target audience for Java Card technology includes companies and
        agencies in the financial, telecommunications, health care,
        transportation and information technology industries. The members of the
        Java Card Forum have created the Strategic Partner Program to ensure
        that the interests of smart card issuers are fully represented. The
        program invites companies that are involved with specifying or issuing
        smart cards to participate in the requirements definition process.
        Through the program, significant contributions are being made by
        financial institutions such as major banks and card associations, by
        telecommunication companies, principally the operators of GSM digital
        wireless networks, and by information technology companies.

1. SN#9474 Sun and IDA Launch Java[TM] Tarik ONE (Java[TM] TONE)

SYSTEM NEWS FOR SUN USERS
Vol 62 Issue 1 2003-03-31  Article 9474 from section "News"

     To Provide Development and Market Access for Next Generation Internet Applications

     Sun Microsystems and the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA)
     have launched Java[TM] Tarik ONE (Java[TM] TONE in short), which is a
     collaboration that focuses on capability development, market development
     and market access for Next Generation Internet Applications (NGIA).

     Coming on the heels of the various successes of the Java Tarik initiatives
     since 1997, Java TONE aims to create competencies in the local Infocomm
     workforce (ONE Capability) and encourage innovation in emerging
     technologies for NGIA. This should be achieved through initiatives in
     Research and Development, piloting and adoption of emerging technologies
     (ONE Development). Java TONE will also develop access to international
     markets for the resulting innovations (ONE Market).

     Three areas will form the pillar of Java TONE:

     - ONE Capability: This will make use of existing Java Competency Centers at
       research centers and institutes of higher learning. This will include
       training and attachment programs, building and integrating new curriculum
       and public competition.

     - ONE Development: This will push for collaboration in research and
       development areas like Sun's N1 architecture and develop strategy for
       network computing and identity management.

     - ONE Market: This will identify and grow business and technology
       opportunities for Singapore infocomm enterprises. Local enterprises can
       leverage Sun's global networks to access Sun's research and development
       resources, develop global strategic alliances, and penetrate overseas
       markets.
